Expert sleeve shortening alterations on RRL sweatshirt

Yellow RRL sweatshirt with shortened sleeve alterations

Check out our work expertly removing 2-inches out of the sleeve length of this RRL sweatshirt with rib knit cuffs. We first removed the 2-needle cover-stitching atop the cuff seam, followed by the overlock stitching that joined the band to the sleeve. Next, we tapered the sleeve to match the original size to the sleeve opening, because the higher you go on the sleeve, the larger the circumference gets. Lastly, we reversed the sewing that was un-did to put everything back together following the original sewing construction.
